to be the best that they can be. host: republican caller. caller: this is smitty from farmington, new mexico. what a wonderful time to get in. ms. sawhill, you are so outdated it's incredible. if anybody wants to know how much money we waste, we just recently had a guy up in the northwest that won a lottery, took home $800,000 cash, and went down to his local -- his local food stamp office, told them that he won the money and they said he still qualified for food stamps. these people are nuts. the federal government probably has a minimum, a very minimum, and i worked for government and i worked in the utility industry which is almost the same as working for government, at least 40% overpaid, at least too many people working. at least 40% working than they need to do the job. when they say they're cutting the government, they're not cutting a darn thing. congress doesn't vote for raises any more. they get automatic raises unless people have the gonads and say they don't need a raise this year. i don't think they've done it since they put that into effect. they don't vote on raises any more.
, jeff bingaman, of new mexico, someone who's always brought intellectual rigor, a lawyer's insistence on thoroughness and a real commitment to people. it's been an honor and a pleasure to work with him on the help committee, especially on the affordable care act. i was proud to support him all that he did, particularly in developing and focusing on the health work force for the future. i knew i could count on jeff in the committee and on the floor as one of those men that i refer to as the ga gallahads, where mn of quality always support we women as we sought equality. our initiatives to end discrimination against women in the health care and in the workplace were some of our proudest achievements in working together. i also would like to comment about jon kyl. i've worked across the aisle from jon kyl and i've been seated across the table from him at everything from bible study group to the senate intelligence committee. we studied the words of the bible together to make ourselves better and we worked in our committees to make the world better. we lived through september 11th and the
border. that would be very helpful. i think we want to work together with mexico and their new leadership on what we do with respect to illegal migration from central america. but all of these things, as your question says, they all are related with each other s you have to create the right balance. you have to have the right way for people to come in legally. you have to have the right balance for who can come in to work particularly in certain jobs where there's a continued labor shortage. when you do that, it allows us on the enforcement side to focus on those who have more nefarious purposes. >> suarez: now you've been a prosecutor, as you mentioned. you've been an executive, a state executive. but you've also been an elected official long enough to know that this is a political question as well. did november 6 change the calculations on both sides of the aisle? is there a new energy to get this done one way or the other? >> well, i think speaking in terms of how we look at it, at department of homeland security and i think if the white house at large, we've been very committed from t
nine auto plants in mexico, but nissan, honda, mazda and audi will be opening new plants. bmw has. crazy, huh? bmw. over the time frame, mexican auto production is expected to surge from 2.5 million vehicles a year to 3.5 million. i think that's low versus what will ultimately be. and kansas city southern and kansas city southern believes they will have 60% market share. kansas city southern should benefit from the auto rebuild that's needed in the wake of hurricane sandy. can't get this stuff to america fast enough. united states fast enough. thanks to the strength of the economy, the increasing volumes with declining costs. the gross margins are expanding. how much do we love that in a rail? however, the auto industry only affects about 18% of kansas city southern's revenues. they do have some coal exposure, something that's crushed a great many american railroads, we know that because we have backed away from a lot of rails because of the coal. but they have something the other railroads don't have, consistently high growth, not that low single digit stuff and not susceptible t
are low and it's easy to ship the cars they build to the u.s. via the rails. >> all aboard! >> yep. mexico's probably the cheapest place on earth to make stuff to send to the united states. and speaking of the rails, the best way to play this theme is with my new favorite railroad stock that i'm unveiling tonight, kansas city southern, ksu. at a time when many rails are struggling, kansas city southern is thriving, stock at $77 and change, just $6 off its highs. why, oh, why do i like this company so much? simple. geography. take a look at this map of the company's rail network, okay? kansas city southern is the new intercontinental railroad. except unlike the one you studied in school, it runs from north to south instead of east to west. it has 6,600-mile network, it's pretty much evenly divided between the united states and mexico and the network is only one interchange away from every single major market in north america. believe me when i tell you, this area is just booming. i go down there a lot and i cannot believe how strong it is. kansas city southern got into mexico in 1996 when t
